STAGE TUBE: On This Day 3/30- CONTACT
Welcome to BWW's ON THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!
Today in 2000, Contact opened at the Vivien Beaumont Theatre, where it ran for 1010 performances. Contact: The Musical is a musical "dance play" (some deemed it a ballet) that was developed by Susan Stroman and John Weidman, with its "book" by Weidman and both choreography and direction by Stroman. It consists of three separate one-act dance plays. The show was received with much critical acclaim and won the 2000 Tony Award for Best Musical. A West End production opened at the Queen's Theatre in October 2002, and closed on May 10, 2003.
In celebration of this day, we bring you 'Simply Irresistible' as performed on 'The Tonight Show.' Click below to check it out!
